“Highly talented 26-member ensemble... Avalon is impeccable as the maiden who doesn't know how to handle the gifts she has been given and Barry is deliciously ruthless. Impressive production values. The supporting ensemble is as credible as any to be found on Broadway.”

Musical extravaganza unleashes one of the most controversial stories in the history of mankind …
From Michael Butler, the award-winning original producer of HAIR on BROADWAY
Passion, piety, and the enticement of power spark a once in a lifetime historic event. Based on the enduring account of a young scholar's rise to the papacy, and brought to life by the original producer of HAIR on Broadway, this musical extravaganza unleashes one of the most controversial stories in the history of mankind.
A cast of 25 professionals, an award winning team, and a live six-piece orchestra create this stunning premiere.
About the Show
During a time marked by social chaos and political turmoil an unexpected pundit ascends the hierarchy of the most powerful regime in the world.
An innovative and dramatic musical account of the historic and ecclesiastical circumstances, which may have given a young girl access to the papacy, brings century old scandals to life once more.
This world premiere musical is being launched in Los Angeles and is bound to be one of the most talked about productions of the year.
